    Just Thought I Would Share. I Guess It Is Like Therapy.

    I met my ex on Myspace in May of 2009. I was 32 at the time and had only had a few relationships, with only one that I would consider serious. I went on a first date with her after she found me on Myspace and sent me a message. The first date went really well. The second date...

    My ex and I dated for three years.

    I broke up with him one year ago after the final straw where he irrationally screamed at me & made me feel unsafe in his presence... Now, he has finally been diagnosed with a form of bipolar and has started a medication. He says he feels great and that it hasn't dampered his...

    I’m a college freshman,

    I miss him, or perhaps the idea of him.

    I've made it close to a full day without thinking of him but some little reminder creeps back in. I think he's sleazy, I think he did me wrong, but I miss the concept behind the relationship and I guess I'm proud to have at least been open and honest for as long as we were. He...
